    The day had just begun in the sleepy little town of Moberly. Dogs didn’t bark, cats didn’t meow, and life had just slowed down. For a Sunday in June it was the hottest yet, the sun being merciless to all. Inside, children played, mothers watched and fathers read the newspaper. A typical Sunday, ...

    The cold hard metal cylinder stares back at me, Mossberg label catching the light as it rotate the stock. The hole in the center of the barrel is menacing as if at any time it will explode – and I know that it eventually will. I move out from in front of the barrel and casually observe my brother....

    We all walk in, Single and alone. We unload our bags, Go find our folders, And pick up a case. We warm up, Flats and sharps filling the air, Each individually Hot air flowing strong, All playing separate notes. He raises his arm And the room falls silent Everyone knows what is about...

    The second hour bell rings as I walk into my Gifted class, the only place I know where time can pass so fast. My Gifted class is the only place to be me, because in every other class all they see is “nerdy.” I come to Gifted to be me without limitations, I come to Gifted to be me with no re...

    I am a tricky feeling. I slowly grow and fester in a dark place – even though you may be reluctant to admit it. I hide in a shadowy region of your heart – not announcing that it I am here, or that I am ever so steadily and subtly growing, but just quietly feeding on whatever it is that spawned m...

    I really don’t like this class. It bores me to tears. I have sat through language, For a plethora of years. Once it was exciting, Maybe even fun. Now it’s just bland, And I’m glad to be done. He sits and he talks About grammar all day, While we sit at our desks Just wasting away. ...

    You know that point in your life where everything is spiraling out of control and you feel like you are suffocating, desperately clinging to the last threads of normalcy left in your life? You feel like you are under water, screaming until your lungs are on fire, yet no one can hear you. You break d...

    Have you ever wanted something so bad that it hurt? Only to have that dream unexpectedly ripped away? For me, that dream – in short – came in the form of a softball jersey. I had worked my derrière off all summer long in preparation for tryouts – early morning weightlifting, long distance run...

    You know that feeling of being on top of a roller coaster? With the wind blowing your hair, intense adrenaline rushing through your veins? You have no control in a situation like this. You are at the mercy of the ride. Quidditch is different. You are flying through the atmosphere. Wind flowing t...

    When you look at my life, what do you see? You see the typical American family, with two parents, three kids and the family pets. A perfect little house on a sizeable piece of land, just enough room to grow up. A mom who bakes and cleans, a dad that works every day, and comes home to relax. Three ...

    I pull out my phone and stare at the screen. Four new messages! Hi :) How are you? Where are you? Why are you ignoring me? I seriously can’t believe he’s freaking out. I have been at softball tournaments all day. I don’t have time to deal with him right now. I’m under stress and I’m...

    That day was perfect – a mega cliché, Blue sky, birds chirping –in the middle of May… You stood at my locker as our conversation ensued, You stood there and promised that you’d always be true. Now it’s September and the sky is aglow, Reminiscent of that day a mere four months ago. Y...

    The fourth hour bell shocks me from my daydreams, and I sadly remember that I am still sitting in the fourth row of Mrs. LeFleur’s French class. I get up and rush into the hallways, so glad to be finished with her for the day. I stare at the note in my binder, and slowly realize that it’s from C...

    Everything you say is worthless, Coming across cold and mean. Everything you say is a dagger, The wound it leaves bright and clean. Everything you say falls through the cracks, As if being sifted by a screen. Everything you say is derogatory, An insult hurled straight towards me. Everythi...

    I sit and listen, To the tick of clocks, To the click of pens, And to the silent hum of boredom… I sit and watch the clock, Ever so slowly, Ticking by, My life fading before me, But after all, Today is just another day…...

    Most days we choose. We choose to get up. We choose to go to school. We even choose what to eat for lunch. Most days… But some days, we can’t choose. Whether to sleep or get up… Whether to wear jeans or sweats… Or whether to have pizza or a taco… On those days, what would you ...

    I thought that if I cut my hair, and acted like them, that I could have their perfect life. But oh no… That’s not for me… I’m just the lonely nerd, who sits across from you in third hour. The one that “has it all” because I’m smart. But guess what, I don’t. If we traded pl...

    I think I have OCD, but I’m not really sure… I don’t know what OCD is but my mom thinks I have it… I really want to figure this out… These papers are not straight… They need to be straight. I stack them and restack them trying to focus on the problem at hand… Maybe some fresh...

    I wait quietly One breath in One breath out Hoping they will hear Hear how their voices sound Just like knives And hear what I hear. I see without my eyes All of my past and theirs Intertwined since we met I know their likes and dislikes But they don’t see me for who I am. I pat...
